Make Your Reservation to Attend

Our 24/7 online reservation system makes it easy for you to schedule your Virtual Orientation program. Virtual Orientation programs will be available to you based your Penn State campus, semester of entry, and college of admission. Participation in orientation is not required for transfer students, but it is highly encouraged. Several of our campuses do require transfer students to complete orientation. All transfer students should enter into our reservation system to view and complete the “New Student Tasklist”, and to see if transfer orientation is required for your campus. 

When making your reservation:

  • review each event description carefully and choose a program that works in your schedule
  • include information about any particular accommodations you will need during Virtual Orientation
  • be sure to click "Submit" after you have selected your preferred Virtual Orientation program

​Your reservation is not guaranteed until you click "Submit". You will receive a confirmation email to the email address(es) you entered with your reservation. You will be able to change or modify your reservation at any time. 

We’ll send you an email from psu-orientation [at] visualzen [dot] com with the subject "Make Your Reservation for Virtual Orientation" when you are eligible to make your reservation. This email will come directly to you at the personal email you provided on your application to Penn State. You will need your Penn State Access Account to make a reservation for orientation.
